Weekly Round-Up


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Just click on the highlighted links to read the posts. If you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.


I am starting off this week on a sad note. Many of you may be aware that Daria Maluta, a fellow blogger and cancer patient, passed away quite suddenly last week. For those of us who have been following Daria’s Living with Cancer blog, her passing has been a shock and a sadness in our lives.  In “Not Again” Nancy sums up our feelings in her latest blog post about Daria’s death.

If you’ve been following the debate in the blogosphere in  recent months over the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®  lawsuits (with respect to apparent trademark violations over other charities using the phrase for the Cure), then you won’t want to miss the latest post Komen By The Numbers from The Cancer Culture Chronicles

I love the fact, that just like myself, Anna from The Cancer Culture Chronicles blog, obviously likes blogging so much, she has more than one blog 🙂 And in her other Can Do Women blog, she introduces us to Sarah Horton, an inspirational woman who has gone from writing about her breast cancer experience to being a published author.

Lots of great posts this week from Uneasy Pink. I particularly enjoyed reading her account of  a report from Dr Mark Hymen on  TEDMED 2010 in which he speaks of a shift in medical thinking from treating the disease to treating the entire system. It’s an interesting read.

This week sees the welcome return of one of my favorite bloggesses, Luann Chevalier. Check out Running the Race and say hi to a lovely lady.

Speaking of our sense of well-being…Debbie’s Pie and Cowbell is all about this very subject If you are wondering what on earth this is all about, go check out her latest post and join in the discussion.

Until next Friday’s Round-Up…

Keep on Blogging!
